I could have been more specific, sorry 'bout that. I'm seeing that
stacks/windows opened with the 'as modal' keyword (or by using macosx
'sheet' command) ignore the lock screen. I see buttons and fields flicking
their contents and winking in and out of visibility. If I change nothing but
remove the "as modal" suffix to the command, the lock screen does in fact do
it's job; the window appears only in it's final state.

I tried to search the bugzilla database for this, but I'm kinda ignorant as
to how to do that; that bugzilla interface is overwhelming (somebody needs a
course in GUI design). I was hoping maybe somebody could confirm that they
see the same thing I do.
